Study Description

The Greek Metabolic (GM) adipose study was carried out in 106 individuals living in Greece and consists of genotyping data (chip), RNA-Seq and ATAC-Seq (for a subset of individuals) data from paired biopsies of Subcutaneous and Visceral adipose tissue. eQTL mapping was performed to study gene regulation and findings compared to those from adipose tissue GTEX data. The focus of this project was to study an underexplored population living in different environmental conditions in order to reveal novel regulatory effects for genes that shape complex traits and disease risk. Our results highlight the utility of modest-sized studies in adding to our understanding of the molecular basis of complex traits and to the identification of mechanisms that drive disease in specific tissues.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
This dataset contains 210 fastq files (RNA sequencing was performed in two centers) from 105 individuals (106 files in subcutaneous tissue and 104 files in visceral tissue). Of the 210 fastq files, 129 files are in PEx100 mode (appeared in a single fastq file) and 81 files are in PEx49bp mode (appeared in two separate fastq files). Sequencing was done on the Illumina HiSeq2000 platform.
Illumina HiSeq 2000 204
This dataset contains 28 fastq files (11 files for subcutaneous tissue and 17 files for visceral tissue) from nine individuals. All samples were initially sequenced by SEx50 mode (16 files) and some of them were also sequenced by PEx100 mode (12 files). Sequencing was done on the Illumina HiSeq2000 platform.
Illumina HiSeq 2000 18
This dataset contains a vcf file for 99 GM individuals genotyped on the Illumina HumanOmni2.5 array . The vcf file is originated after imputation (IMPUTE2) and filtering for minor allele frequency MAF≥0.05, imputation confidence score INFO of >0.4 and Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium (HWE) p>1e-06, yielding ~6.3 million variants.
